Thanks David. Ludwig attached the spring between the rh head mount bolllt and the rh frame bolt which held the original rubber mount. I never saw the article Jan wrote to Dog-T, but the second picture from the left is exactly how I made my shape, and I did use 6mm steel. I made the supports out of a solid 50 mm dia bit of aluminium, and I used front engine mount washers in between. [ cant think what they are called right now. ] I based my mounting on the above 2 pictures. Jan had drilled a hole in a hex headed bolt on the frame and you can see in the picture the wee bracket he made held to the head by the rh head mount bolt. I had two bikes to convert, firstkly thwe 850, which when I first put together, the tank hit the bracket. I had to cut away teh top edge to miss the tank. The second one I made, i cut the top half of the original 1971 mount and welded the vertical shape onto that. I did have a problem with my first mount which I will let you know about in a different thread.
